Description

Meet your guide in downtown Barcelona, board a comfortable bus and head to Girona, one of the biggest cities located at the north of Barcelona.

Enjoy a guided walking tour and explore the city's well preserved medieval streets and one of the best preserved Jewish quarters in Europe. Discover Girona's important artistic heritage, learn about its history, see the Cathedral in the old city centre and admire the famous pastel coloured houses at the edge of the river bank.

Then, wander around the city at your own pace during your freetime before returning to Barcelona.

Take some time to have lunch before your afternoon tour to Montserrat Monastery.

Then, you will be taken to Montserrat Mountain which rises majestically to 4,051 feet (1,236 meter). You will be impressed by the strange and varied forms of the rocks of Montserrat that were shaped by the wind and the rain during centuries. Popular imagination has seen human or animal shape in some of these peaks, giving those names and inventing legends to explain their fantastic origins.

Ride the Cog-Wheel Train up to Montserrat and admire the spectacular view of the mountain from the train's panoramic windows which make the actual journey a not-to-miss attraction.

At Montserrat, you will visit the Royal Basilica of Montserrat, which holds the famous 12th century Romanesque carving of Verge Moreneta also known as the Black Madonna. The Benedict sanctuary of Montserrat has been founded in 1025 and provides a mystical backdrop for the Virgin of Montserrat, the patron saint of Catalonia who is enshrined in the monastery's Royal Basilica. The little monastery soon began to receive pilgrims and visitors who contributed to the spread of stories of miracles and wonders performed by the Virgin. Today, Montserrat has been modernized to continue attending to the needs to pilgrims, one thousand years after it was originally founded.

You will be given free time to visit an audiovisual exhibition about the history and creation of Montserrat and taste typical liquors of Montserrat made by the monks of the monastery.
